You cannot go wrong with the salad, the hushpuppies, and the local shrimp! Great views of Murrells Inlet and even better food. The service was good, considering how busy they were.

Visited Nances while on vacation with my entire family. It's wonderful including the sweet tea. That's saying something since beach water is not too good. Anyway their hush puppies are delicious. Our table had burgers, crab cakes and a seafood platter. All rave reviews.

We ate here our last night, and after eating at several other area restaurants, we would rate this a 3 out of 5. Nothing horrible, nothing great, just very average food. I posted other reviews of places we ate that were excellent.

Go to Nance's! It's a Murrell's Inlet institution! I've been going there annually (at least) for about 40 years. Never been disappointed! Great food, beautiful view of the inlet, and great atmosphere!

So sorry to hear that you didn't have a great dining experience. As far as no manager being available, that is an incorrect statement. I had a new hostess in training and I was up front with her the entire evening except for moments I was called elsewhere into the restaurant. You personally called the restaurant (after you had left).... More

We drove to Nance's from Myrtle Beach for dinner. We had been to Nance's 18 years ago and had a great meal. Things have gone down since then. When we arrived there was no wait. There was a 15 minute lag between my husband and son's meal coming out and then 15 minutes later my daughter's and my meal. The... More

We have eaten at Nance's Creekfront Restaurant since I was a kid. I have never had a bad meal there. The marsh view is wonderful and the waits are not horrendous. They serve every meal with a huge bottomless bowl of bite-sized hush puppies. My kids adore these. They have many seafood options, which we all prefer. Between my family... More

After trying to get into other places in Murrells Inlet with no luck, we tried Nance's. I don't usually get fish eating out so I'm not an expert. But. Wow! I had fried flounder. It was huge and the best I've ever had. Wife had crab cakes. Kids had a burger and chicken. All loved it. Great service and views.... More

Drove to Murrell's Inlet on a whim, just looking for a nice drive. Saw Nance's and decided to have dinner. Seated immediately, attended to immediately, food served HOT in about 15 minutes! Amazing view, great open dining area. Great experience. Excellent Fried shrimp, slaw and fries. Will come again.
